England & Cyprus 2006 (part 3)

Following EGSR06, we took a bus to Agia Napa on the southeast coast of Cyprus, where we spent an additional three days enjoying invited speakers on various graphics rendering and modeling topics.

After the EG Symposium on Rendering in Nicosia, we took a bus to Agia Napa on the southeast coast of Cyprus for a follo-on seminar with invited speakers. Here is my hotel room.

Helge and Dominique were there for both symposia, and it was the first conference Helge had ever been to where he didn't need to give a presentation.

The seminar talks were held at the sister hotel up the beach, and we took every opportunity to dip our toes.

Lunches always ended up running over thanks to the relaxed atmosphere (and service).

Most evenings were filled with planned activities. This evening, we were treated to a Cypriot cultural museum.

There were many of these buggies driving around town, which you could rent at a reasonable price. They would not even have been street legal in most countries.

No question that Mashhuda takes better pictures, in front of the lens or behind it.

I swam back into one of these caves -- not this one, but a smaller one near our hotel. That was an experience.
